Burlington on Al Jazeera English 

Seven Days, VPR, the Burlington Free Press and other local media have covered Burlington Telecom's attempt to drop Al Jazeera English from its cable TV line-up.

Now you can add Al Jazeera English to the list of media outlets reporting on the debate.

The Arab news network aired this 12-minute segment on Friday. They sent a local camera crew from Channel 17 to interview Seven Days staffer Ken Picard a couple weeks ago. So of course when it aired, a group of us clustered around Ken's laptop to watch the live stream.

Lots of other locals make appearances, including Sandy Baird, Sam Mayfield and Bill Simmon.
